Gantz is the type of series that makes you wish you could get all the wasted hours you spent watching it back. It's pretty much nothing but ultraviolence and sex with no substance, soul, or proper conclusion. Really not recommended unless violence and sex are the only things you're watching it for. The first half was alright but the second half is a horrid trainwreck. As for recent stuff you might like, you might want to give: Darker Than Black Eden of the East Ergo Proxy Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex The Kara no Kyoukai films Kaze no Yojimbo Kurenai Monster Red Garden Rideback Ryoko's Case Files (Yakushiji Ryoko no Kaiki Jikenbo) Time of Eve (Eve no Jikan) ....a try. Well, I could tell off all the people that piss me off at work too, but its just dumb and simply bad bussiness practice. You want people to use your service so you can get money. Being an asshole is counter-productive to this, because you will lose customers, and in AS's case, viewers. AS whines that anime doesn't get the ratings when their own actions have played a large part in why that is, by driving them off in the first place.
